BISS LIST PICKS for SF BAY AREA

BISS 05.01.13 - ERNEST RANGLIN / AFROLICIOUS / POOR MAN'S WHISKEY / HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! / BOTTLEROCK!!!

Still gotta say Happy JazzFest BISS Listers!! The BISS rule that says,  "There is no such thing as FOMO" was first put into effect at a JazzFest in NOLA many years ago. For those who don't know, FOMO stands for Fear of Missing Out. At JazzFest no matter where you are, you are not missing out on anything! You are out all night, you are at the fairgrounds, you are eating, watching, playing, you are sleeping through any one of those things. You are right where you are supposed to be at all times!  

So we say, FOMO? What FOMO? Remember, it is not allowed here at the BISS List.  While everyone else, who won't be reading this, is out Jazzfesting it up all day and night, we'll be getting our grooves on right here at home, all over the bay area!

Thursday night, one of the most legendary godfathers of Reggae & Ska takes the stage at Hopmonk Sebastopol! If you have not seen him, this is definitely a show you do NOT want to miss! And as always, you can *WIN* tickets from BISS List!! As you journey back down from the North, ramble through Petaluma for Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers.

In the city on Thursday, get your funk on with your weekly Afrolicious party hosts DJ's, Senor Oz and Pleasuremaker (*WIN*).  Or check out the new project, Naked Soul (formerly Alma Desnuda) at the Boom Boom Room, always going late night (*WIN*)!

Friday night, we are headed to one of the newest venues in SF, The Chapel, with  Poor Man's Whiskey (*WIN*).  Get there early to check out Lonesome Locomotive!  Then we end our night with the Funk Revival Orchestra at the Boom Boom Room. Always sure to bring the funky dance party!  (*WIN)

In the East Bay on Friday night, you get a second chance to celebrate the new album with Afrolicious at The New Parish. If you have been to the weekly Thursday night parties, this is all that and then turned up a notch with the full band that is Afrolicious rocking you out all night long (*WIN*)!!

Saturday afternoon, we'll be drinking mint juleps and watching the Kentucky Derby. Who needs stats? Pick the one with the best name!

Saturday night, it's round two with Ernest Ranglin at The Sweetwater in Mill Valley!  If you miss him at the Hopmonk on Thursday this week, don't make that mistake on Saturday. If you do make it Thursday, you'll probably want to see him again anyway!! (*Congrats to Dan K and Denise H!)

In the city on Saturday, get your newgrass bluegrass with the INFAMOUS STRINGDUSTERS at The Great American Music Hall (*WIN).  Or rock out with the STONE FOXES at The Fillmore.  Be sure to get there early for BISS favorite, THE SHE'S. We always say they are "up and coming" but clearly they have arrived!  (*Congrats to Janna B, Brianna S, & One more chance to win!!)

Sunday, Happy Cinco De Mayo!  Of course, the entire city will be celebrating.  If you are still standing that night, check out Jerry Joseph at Sweetwater (*WIN).  Or get dubsteppin at the Elbo Room for your weekly Sunday Dub Mission (*WIN).

Next week, all you jazz festers better recover quickly from what I don't have to hear about to know was an amazing non-stop musical extravaganza! No seriously, don't tell me!  

Bottlerock takes over Napa from May 9 - 12!! (While the BISS crew takes over the Pink Palace!)  By now you have surely heard about Bottlerock with one of the most diverse and eclectic (let alone amazing) lineups of any modern music festival. Add to that the best of wine, food, and comedy, and you have something truly unique! If you have a three day, four day, or 4 day VIP, you can start on Wednesday night with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. "This is f*****g awesome!" Then continue on Thursday and all the way through Sunday with Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Zac Brown Band, Jackson Browne, Train, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite, Cake, The Flaming Lips, The Black Crowes, Alabama Shakes, The Shins, Primus, ALO, Tift Merritt, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Kacey Musgraves, The Secret Sisters, Flagship, The Wallflowers, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Girls and Boys, Mavis Staples, Brandi Carlile, Blues Traveler and many more .... 
Tickets are still available:http://bottlerocknapavalley.com/tickets  
And even more good news, there are rooms available in the area:http://bottlerocknapavalley.com/where-stay  

You can even *WIN TICKETS from BISS for BOTTLEROCK!! To *WIN* share the Bottlerock event on Facebook, Twitter, Email, Word of Mouth and anywhere else you can think of to spread the word.  The winners will be chosen based on highest visibility and best content. (subject to BISS) For extra credit, tag the bands, the venues, the promoters, and BISS.  Yes, frequency counts.  

Don't go too crazy on Sunday night, cause you still need some energy to make it out on Monday night. Biss Presents BLUES TRAVELER, A Benefit In Honor Of Bo Mahoney In Conjunction With Sweet Relief!  This will be a night of music, friends, family & celebration. If you haven't heard about it by now, you can get more info on what this is all about on the Sweet Relief web site: https://www.sweetrelief.org/program/bo-mahoney-fund/  

The show is SOLD OUT but ask around and find someone with an extra ticket because this show will be amazing.  Not only do you get to see Blues Traveler put on a super jamming show for their long time friend and former crew member Bo Mahoney, in this small intimate venue but there will also tons of special guests including (but not necessarily limited to): Zigaboo Modeliste (The Meters), Eddie Roberts (New Mastersounds), DJ Logic, Glenn Hartman (Klezmer Allstars), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green), Mighty Dave Pelliciaro (Materialized), Mark Karan (Ratdog), Lebo (ALO), Bo Carper (New Monsoon), Alan WIlliams (Katdelic, Manicato), Victor Little (Booker T), John Mader (Booker T., The Family Stone,Fred Wesley) Scott Redner (John Popper) Plus the night will be MC'd by our dear friend Dave Martin.
